Perhaps appropriate for someone who's traveled the world many times over and technically graduated to senior-citizen status, "Where Are We Now?" is a slow, soft, loping crooner, filled with...what do the Germans say?...ah,
Weltschmerz. The track displays some of the jazzy, soulful DNA of his last effort, Heathen, with the same basic themes. Now, if sad Bowie wasn't what you were hoping for, don't fret. There's a full album of material dropping March 12, so all you "Let's Dance" and "Diamond Dogs" fans may still get your sing-a-long, late-night burner. It's an exciting day, people.
